"Made from 100% Pinot Noir sourced from Verzenay (80%) and Les Riceys (20%), this has zippy strawberry and raspberry notes with hazelnut hints. The palate has a satisfying vivacity, with minty notes and a fresh texture." Yohan Castaing(Bordeaux, 04 Nov 2019)
About Prices Rose
This is the pink version of the Champagne Princes de Venoge, born to pay homage to the founder Joseph de Venoge who created his Champagne for the royal house of the Orange. Like its alter-ego Blanc de Blancs, Champagne Princes de Venoge Brut Ros̬ also has a bottle with sinuous lines that are completely similar to those of a decanter.
The Pinot Noir which makes up 100% of the grapes comes from a selection of grapes from the Mesnil sur Oger and Verzenay area. A portion of Pinot Noir harvested from the vineyards of Les Riceys brings the trait full of its character, creating a complete and complex Champagne.
Orange peel, strawberry and gooseberry combine in a festive, fresh and crunchy aroma. The palate expresses itself on the same fruity exuberance, refined by the savory elegance and supported by the solidity of the full body.
Excellent to accompany a plate of tagliolini with seafood.
About Champagne de Venoge:
Champagne de Venoge is a historic House based on Avenue de Champagne in Epernay since 1837. Co-founder of the Syndicat des Grandes Marques de Champagne in 1872 to guarantee quality standards, creator of the illustrated labels, first House that launched a Blanc de Noirs, de Venoge always could count on a refined and amateur clientele. Created in 1852 the Cordon Bleu is the symbol of the Champagne House.
De Venoge has had for a long time talentuous enologists and imposes high-quality standards concerning the aging of the wines, the grape selection in the best crus, and a low-dosage politic. Champagne de Venoge produces emblematic Cuvée like the Champagne des Princes or the Cuvée Louis XV with their typical bottle shaped like a decanter. The House also counts as one of the richest vinoth̬que in Champagne. Part of Lanson-BCC, the house is widely present in the French market. It is lately enjoying greater visibility abroad as its champagnes earned impressive ratings by the prestigious publication Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, becoming one of the best-rated Champagne houses. The wines of the House are exported in 40 countries only in the selective distribution network: specialized shops, hotels, and restaurants.
